I’ve had my 1412 for a little over a year, but haven’t really dialed it in.
So today I decided to tune it up. I cleaned and waxed the table, and spent a good hour setting it up with one of the popular methods out there.
After fiddling with a feeler gauge and the guides, taking the top on and off, and adjusting my fence at least 10 times, I managed to get fairly atrocious resawing performance out of it.
Frustrated, I hopped on YouTube and watched the Laguna video. It was there that I learned that the ceramic guides are actually supposed to contact the blade (which I’m sure I would have found out if I had read the manual in the first place).
So I went back to my shop and spent a grand total of 30 seconds adjusting the guides. My first test yielded a perfectly resawn board. I was able to make sheets as thin as a piece of heavy cardboard.
So with my newfound love for the 1412, I obviously had to resaw everything in sight…...
I have no idea what I’m going to do with 1/16” thin pieces of polar, but maybe some day I’ll need them.
